.c.. it takes place in cia headquarters, the pentagon, and at the white house. you know, it's funny for me to write a story about a military operation where 90% of the story takes place in washington, d.c., but that's where the story actually unfolded. today, unique, i think, among presidents of the united states, president obama is almost, daily, given a dossier on a target. this is someone in the cross hairs of the cia or the military, and obama or directer petraeus has to make a decision about whether to shoot at that target, whether to take that person out. now, i know that presidents have had to make critically important decisions affecting thousands and hundreds of thousands of lives throughout history of this country, but it seems to me to be a new development for the president of the united states to be deciding on individual targets around the world on a regular basis, and i think that that is probably one of the most unique developments in modern war, and that kind of defines right now the nature of the war that we're fighting. obama, when he said that he was, you know, willing t

a pilgrimage at the pentagon city mall in arlington, virginia. she joins us now. beautiful backdrop. what's it like over there, stacy? >> good morning. alina, you know, i'm not one of those folks that wants all the tech toys. i want to come to the mall, buy some clothes and jewelry and makeup and that's what you're going to find here. if i didn't know it was 6:00 in the morning and pitch-black outside i would think it's a normal day in the mall. in the hallways right now, somewhat sparse. george said it well when they're expecting not a gangbuster year. but the mall opened at 5:00 a.m. and there were certainly shoppers here. they have deals in every corner. a lot of people are turning to online. they have a lot of apps now where you can shop before shopping and find 9 best deals and not necessarily come to the mall and hunt and gather. you can figure out what you want before you get to the mall. but we have a steady stream of folks. i think that retailers are really hoping for some good sales. cyber monday is coming up, as you know, and they're staying busy at pentagon city. i haven't got

clear and the president was clear during the campaign that the pentagon has actually asked for less than what republicans, you know, have wanted to give them. there are a lot of outdated systems that just don't need to be paid for in our military budget. and that should be okay. but it really does have to start with taking away the death grip that grover norquist has had on not just the republicans who signed his pledge, but on the american people. i think if you ask any normal person, they would say, who? they have no idea who this man is. and he should not have any source of input into our economy. >> true. [laughter] >> it should be over. this death grip has -- heather: so your answer, so, jehmu -- >> spending is so terrible in washington, d.c., the waste is unbelievable. we have so much debt, we've got to address that right away. heather: so jehmu's saying to the military, and, didi, in terms of spending cuts specifically what area? >> well, we've got to cut across the board. washington, d.c. is so bloated and in such terrible -- i mean, we're broke as a country. we need to make sure

to all regulators, the pentagon, flown to washington, quarterly briefings, you guys need to be in this community. we will open up everything and you don't even know what is possible because it is not my job to regulate, it is not my job to enforce. it is my job to help the regulators do their job better so we feel our responsibility is to bring those entities that we trust protecting our safety, bring them into the process, allow them to see what is possible, stop the bad guys early. we have a deal that if you say something in the community, like here is my drone idea, and go a real long distance, might be a little dangerous, we are like that sounds totally sketchy and we will call off our friend the fbi just like that and we told everybody we would do it and we feel that is our responsibility to let the pros to their job. >> is it time -- [talking over each other] >> robotics, rules would stop robots. it makes everyone bring this up, turns out for a robot to be smart enough to apply the three loss, already taken over the world. that is artificial intelligence, cognition

're working at places like the pentagon, central command and working in afghanistan and iraq and some of the headquarters, and so there's probably about 2,000 to 3,000 navy seals. they were started on january 1, 1962, by president john f. kennedy. and the reason why he started the seals was he wanted to have a force -- a seal, you may know, stands for sea, air and land commando. and what president kennedy wanted to do was he wanted to have a force of people, a dedicated and high will hi-trained force that -- highly-trained force that he could put in deadly situations who could not only respond tactically, but could also respond and use their minds and be thoughtful about working in some very difficult, dangerous situations. and his theory, the international relations thief ri that led to the development of the sale team was called the flexible response. and the idea was that the united states needed to be able to respond in a flexible manner, not just using nuclear weapons which was kind of the theory at the time. we needed to be able to respond in a flexible manner to any threat that

in the future. host: what would the pentagon cut if sequestration happen? guest: 9.4% cut, so it is on the order of $500 billion a little bit more. about half over all, over 10- year cuts in spending. it is a significant cut. host: going back to what we started with, they have not said specifically what they were looking at or bay -- have given the public some idea? guest: they said, first of all, but would be almost, but -- unavoidable to have furloughs. certainly contracts spending would be cut. the president had an option to exempt troops, the impact on their pay and he indicated he would exercise the option if that happens, so that would not be on the table. but there would definitely be cuts in weapons systems, contract and, and civilian furloughs. host: burlington, north carolina. republican caller. caller: i think we all have to agree -- in a sense that we are all in agreement -- that something needs to happen. but we already have the tools in place. we have bowles-simpson, which was an idea. the fear is that nothing is going to get done until january. there was little to no talk about cu

understand that. but the idea of the state department, it was actually the pentagon last week, a woman said i had my first kid -- i saved up my vacation and sick days and used them all up. even in the federal government, we need paid leave. i think beyond that, high- quality accessible daycare. i do not understand why that is not much more of a political issue than it is. those will in fact all women -- most of us in the room can manage without the last one. we can buy it or find it, but it ought to be far more general and accessible for those who cannot afford it. those issues cover the waterfront. there are other issues that do not. the kind of flexibility i am talking about will be very helpful for women who have a shot at leadership positions and might allow women to stay in the game so that when you have kids and need to do work differently you do not give up on the career you trained for and educated for and started for and are still eligible for leadership down the road. flexibility for people at the bottom of the chain can mean something really different -- it can mean you work 15 or
